Less is More – Open Hollow Pendant
Rather than making a shadowbox pendant, I left this piece open. Brushed silver with an open center allows whatever necklace the wearer chooses to show through the piece.

This hollow form pendant is made of hand-punched fine silver with fine silver overlay and Guadalupe Poppy Jasper.
Poppy Jasper gets it’s name from orbicular patterns resembling poppies. This piece has bursts of golds and green surrounded by reds and deep brown.
Gorgeous, deep color.
Overlay is a traditional Native American technique often found in Hopi and Navajo jewelry designs.
Guadalupe poppy jasper is from New Almaden, California. The mine it comes from is now closed and this variety of poppy jasper is considered extinct. This stone was mined at least 3o years ago. It is a collectible and only exists in private stashes. Very rare.
This piece is 2 1/2 inches long by 3/4 inches wide at the widest point and 1/4 inch deep. Absolutely one-of-kind hollow form piece, from the stone to the cut-out design on the front. Signed on the back ~ Matagi Sorensen.

Hand-Hammered Silver Disc Earring with Raw Copper and Garnet
Hanging silver disc earrings have a deep earthy quality due to the rawness of the hand-texturized process. The metals are left unpolished to further enhance their natural beauty. Over time, the copper will deepen in color. Each earring is one-of-a-kind due to their hand-crafted creation.
Modern, southwestern, elegant.
Tear-Shaped Copper Top and Silver Pendant
Highly polished copper and silver balance one another as the warmth of rich copper softly dips in with its concave shape with cool silver acts as copper’s base. This piece is very tactile, the shape is inviting to touch.
The rich reds and purples of the copper are drawn out by highly heating it. I never know exactly how the copper will look before I heat it, though that is the beauty of the process. This once reminds me of the rich colors of a southwestern sunset.
Hollow form, hand-crafted and one-of-a-kind. Signed on the back. Approximately an inch tall by about 3/4 inches wide. Shown with a 7-strand black omega necklace.
Caribbean Blue Bowl Slider Pendant with Copper and Silver

The blue enamel ripples across copper, and copper peeks out along the edges of blue. A refreshing jolt of color.
No two pendants of this style are alike. Each piece has its own color and texture variation due to the hand-crafted process.
